Neilson Hays Young Writers Awards

Each year the Neilson Hays Library invites students from Year 6 and above, to submit original children’s picture books as part of a writing competition.

Year 6 have been working tirelessly over the past few weeks on this project for homework and have produced some exceptionally creative and imaginative pieces. However, after much deliberation, 5 stories have been chosen to be entered into the competition.

Here is the list of the chosen entrants:

Lottie LangdonA Modern Voyage of Discovery

Ashika Sachdev and Hannah KiatsupaibulThe Shadow of a Princess

Tongwang Yannakornthanapunt and Ben TermvivatJourney through Time

Annisha SachdevThe Quest of the Lost Boy

Elliot Fletcher George’s Breakfast Journey


If selected as a finalist, they will be invited to participate in a workshop at Chakrabongse Villas, where published writers and illustrators will critique and coach the students on their works.



Winners of the competition will get to see their works read out loud by prominent figures in the literary and art world, as well as be presented with certificates and a cash prize of 10,000 baht per category.

There will also be a special Ambassador’s Selection Prize of 10,000 baht, presented by H.E. Ms. Donica Pottie of the Embassy of Canada.


All our nominees should feel truly proud to be representing Bangkok Prep and we wish them the very best of luck!
